How many of us, when we started reading romance, chose a book based on how long it was, the longer the better (We talked about the self-satisfaction of reading a very long book in For the Love of...The Longest Novel Ever).
Longer books could keep us entertained for...longer, and given that many of us are voracious readers, that extra length made a big difference.
With the e-reader revolution, it’s not as easy to tell if a book is long. Plus the length of a book can be deceptive in e-readers, if there is bonus content at the end or other superfluity. So, do you look at how long a book is before clicking to purchase? If you’re reading both paper and e-, do you save the longer books for your e-reader so you don’t have to haul the heavy book around with you?
Does size matter anymore?
